I'm actually respected at my PetCo lol. Everytime the manager of the fish department sees me he's like "Anything new to tell me about bettas?" I'm one of the few knowledged people. I always have to help someone at WalMart (suprise suprise).
I've seen him also tell people to stay away from betta bowls and go with tanks instead.
Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
